I started with two thin coats of China Glaze - White On White. Once that had dried, I roughly hand painted on two thin coats of China Glaze - Red Pearl. It should cover half of the nail, and try to get as straight of a line across the middle as you can. Don't worry about taping it though, since you still have to add the black over the top.
Once that has dried, draw a medium-thickness line across the divider between red and white, and add a black circle in the middle. Once THAT has dried, put a white dot in the middle of the black circle. I used Sally Hansen nail art pens for these steps.
Let dry and cover with topcoat! It's a pretty simple mani and definitely a crowd pleaser (well, if your crowd is a big bunch of awesome nerds, like mine is)!
